Do schedulers at the BBC go on training courses entitled things like How Not to Schedule a Cult Comedy program or something?

Why on earth have they put The Mighty Boosh on at 7pm? Surely the fact that they have to beep out all the (only mildly offensive) swearwords should have suggested to them that it's the wrong time? And to make matters worse, 7pm on BBC 2 is the slot that always gets fucked around with at the drop of a hat to accommodate shit sporting events that only sad fat old men care about (like sn**ker, for example).

And has anyone seen a single trailer for it? Unlike The Smoking Room which has been trailed ad nauseum.

It's almost like they want it to fail so they can turn round and go "Look, surreal comedy doesn't work. Let's never commission any ever again".

Eejits.

Aaaaannnd breathe...

Now that little rant's over, I'm turning this thread over to general love of the show and all who sail in her.

I don't have BBC 3 so I didn't see it the first time round, and I didn't even know it was being showed on BBC 2. Whens it on?

It's Wednesdays at 7pm, snooker permitting. I thnk they've already shown two epidsodes. Make sure you don't miss Electro - the best show of the series.

You know, I'm really glad I was naughty and downloaded the BBC3 episodes from EMule otherwise I'd probably never have got to see this.

I also take no end of hilarity in the fact that Noel goes up Julian's bum at one point wink.gif

Did the Robots in Disguie girls write the song or was it Julian? I love it. SHould be released as a proper single.

One of my boyfriend's friends has done a mix incorporating bits from that episode to great effect. If I can get him to rip it, I'll put a link up here.

No, Julian wrote all the music as far as i'm aware (well, except Killer on the road, Cars and Don't you want me), they did play on it though smile.gif

of your friend does make an mp3 of it, can I put it on the site? there's lots of dowload action going on at the moment, someone's made me an MP3 of the HILARIOUS Breezeblock session they did last week.

"John Lennon!" "Imagine" "I have an aincient Ball sack disease" etc...
